This image describes how commonly and how strongly the wind blows from different directions over a normal May. The largest spokes point in the directions the wind most commonly blows from and the shade of blue implies the strength, with the strongest winds shown by the darkest shade of blue. It is based on 3182 NWW3 forecasts of wind since since 2008, at 3hr intervals, for the closest NWW3 model node to Tardinghen, located 16 km away (10 miles). There are insufficient recording stations world wide to use actual wind data. No doubt some coastal places have very localized wind effects that would not be predicted by NWW3. According to the model, the dominant wind at Tardinghen blows from the WSW. If the rose graph shows a fairly circular pattern, it means there is no strong bias in wind direction at Tardinghen. By contrast, dominant spokes illustrate favoured directions, and the more deep blue, the stronger the wind. Spokes point in the direction the wind blows from. During a typical May, the model suggests that winds are light enough for the sea to be glassy (light blue) about 4% of the time (1 days each May) and blows offshore just 10% of the time (0 days in an average May). Over an average May wind stronger than >40kph (25mph) was expected for only a single days at Tardinghen
